Panzerfaust (2005-present) is a Black Metal band from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
ississauga (a suburb of Toronto)'s Panzerfaust perform what can best be described as 'Militarized Pagan black metal' in vein of black metal's second wave like Mayhem, Darkthrone, Emperor, Immortal while taking attributes from bands of the post-Norwegian black metal scene of Dark Funeral, Marduk, Nargaroth.
